Al Gore - a former Senator, Vice President, and popular vote winner of the 2000 presidential election - said last week that it's time for single-payer healthcare.
So why did the media ignore him?
Now that Americans have seen what the alternatives are, single-payer healthcare is more popular than ever - and it just won its biggest endorsement yet in former Vice President Al Gore.
During an appearance in New York City this week to promote his new climate change documentary, former president Al Gore said he supports single payer healthcare:
"The private sector has not shown any ability to provide a good, accessible, affordable healthcare for all. I believe, for example, we ought to have a single-payer healthcare."
So, where was the media coverage of this?
If some former Republican vice president or president had come out in favor of Trumpcare, there would have been wall-to-wall coverage.
